How do I give through a donor-advised fund?

  1. Recommend a donor-advised fund through your financial institution or foundation.

    You can recommend a gift through your financial institution or foundation. The grant will arrive at Saddleback Medical Center Foundation, with only the fund's name and address on it unless you request otherwise. 

  2. Contact your fund manager

    Call your fund manager and tell the person you would like to support Saddleback Medical Center Foundation, and provide an amount for your grant.

    The fund manager will send a check directly to SMCF. 

Please request for your name and address, and the area you'd like to support, to also be included. You may also want to call us at (949) 452-3724 to inform us of your gift, so you can be recognized for your generosity.
